"Gene Ween" Sings Rod McKuen

Email a Friend

For more than 25 years, Aaron Freeman (aka Gene Ween) crafted twisted pop songs as one half of the duo Ween. But now, he’s shed his persona to release a solo album called Marvelous Clouds, consisting entirely of work by the best-selling poet and soft-rock balladeer, Rod McKuen. We’ll talk with Freeman about stepping out from behind his pseudonym, struggling with addiction, and taking on the challenge of soft rock.
